Northern Light (Gunflint Trail) Water Levels

4 posts in this topic

I'll be heading up to the area in 2 weeks. I wanted to take my fiance out on northern light so she can get some good moose viewing and I can catch a bunch of pike...just wondering how the water level is? I was there in september and it was LOW!!!

I would say that the lakes right now are low but not as low as they were last fall.

Wife and I might be up on the 2nd of June. If not then the 16th for sure. She lived up there for a while. Do you camp there or just fish for the day?

I believe there is 1 walk in campsite, but that's it. I stay at the outpost motel (very good people running the place, been staying there since I was in diapers) just outside of grand marais...I fish a different lake everyday while I'm up there.

      Thanks for all the replies, we just ended up driving home (Duluth). Sorry I wasn't very specific on dates - we went up yesterday. Tried calling Pike Bay to no avail.    Hit the edge of a small reef and fished the rocks, transition, and sand. Two very small walleye were all we connected with.   Would have been nice to stay for the night bite, but got up early and did some trout fishing in the Duluth area this morning.   Tight lines.

      Smoked 8  up this weekend and really better than I thought they would be.  fillet fish leave skin on for brine 1/2 cup noniodine salt 1 cup sugar 1 qt water brine overnight rinse, pat dry and let sit out for an hour or so.  sprinkle with a seasoning if you like. I did lemon pepper on a couple and seafood magic on a couple.  have smoker heated to 200 put in smoked with a little cherry wood smoke 1 hour and done.  should be about 155 degrees internal.  nom nom nom ! ! !

      I have a BIL that lives south of there a bit. He says carnelian has lots of springs in it and wouldn't drive out there for no amount of money.

      Out on the north end. 8", 15" and a 24" over night. I've lost about 8 so far off rattles. Not sure if I'm not getting a good hookset or what. I've tried horsing them in and babying... headshakes are dislodging the hooks.   any advise? I'd have 12 on the board had I not missed any!
